Unseasonably warm and humid conditions ahead of a press of much cooler, drier air helped to fuel severe storms from Ohio to southeastern Missouri.

Strong thunderstorm winds have downed trees and triggered flooding across Indiana and Ohio.

"Despite it being early November, a second season of severe weather is typical in the fall months as progressively colder air battles with lingering warmth. That is exactly what we are seeing in the Ohio Valley to end this weekend," AccuWeather Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

The threat for severe weather has diminished considerably since Sunday afternoon. As a line of rain and storms presses southeastward into the central Appalachians and Ohio Valley, local flash flooding and gusty winds will become the primary risks.

"This front will move through the Northeast on Monday, but severe weather is not expected,"Pydynowski said.

11:00 p.m. EST Sunday: Soaking rain and thunderstorms continue to progress to the south and east into the central Appalachians and Ohio Valley. Localized flash flooding will be the main concern through the overnight hours, but a few more tornado spin ups are also possible.
